Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras
In June 2009 the Operator Algebras and Applications International Summer School was held in Lisbon. Dr Joel Feinstein taught one of the four courses available on Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras. He delivered four 90 minute lectures on and this learning object contains the slides, handouts, annotated slides and audio podcasts from each session. Banach function algebras are complete normed algebras of bounded, continuous, complex-valued functions defined on topological spaces.
